Conservator Howard Sutcliffe with Kermit

The Conservator's World

Thursday, September 30, 2021 -
5:00pm to 6:00pm

Renown Conservator, Howard Sutcliffe, will describe his work on three Museum garments for the current exhibition Forever Chanel: Coco + Karl, as well as other recent adventures in conservation. The conservator, who cares for and often stabilizes and saves artifacts, textiles and garments from ruin, is a remarkable combination of historian, scientist, aritst and dare we say alchemist.  This special event is made possible by the Jean Druesedow Endowed Fund for Costume and Textile Conservation, sponsored by Christopher P. Sullivan, M.D.
